Phaeocollybia californica

Grab it firmly and pull up gently and you can confirm a Phaeocollybia by its rooting base.   There are a lot of Phaeocollybia species on the west coast.  Big ones - small ones, fat ones - thin ones, solitary or clustered.   Phaeocollybia californica is one of the more exciting because of its attractive colouring and the fact that it often fruits in large numbers.
